Figure 1 Table 2 shows the concentrations of the different solutions (#1-4), along with the initial rate (M/s). Table 2 Solution # [Acetone], M [Iodine], M Initial rate, M/s 1 .20 .20 2 .20 .40

Figure 2 Using the rate law, it can be predicted that the theoretical initial rate of the reaction for Solution #4 would be approximately around the same value as Solution #1 and #3, since the manipulation of Iodine has no effect on the rate of the reaction. According to the experimental value, this prediction is correct—the value is very close to that of Solution #1 and #3. It is important to keep the total volume the same throughout the experiment in order to obtain fair and accurate results. If the volume different in each experiment, it would be very difficult to determine which reactant was responsible for the rate change. If more water had been introduced to one
